Welcome to a new year in Middles. We all hope that you have had a great Summer! This year the Middles teaching team is Mr Hawkins, Mrs Morris and Mrs Taylor.
Welcome to the Middles Summer term! The time has come to begin our new topic – a new topic for the school, as well as the term! We will ask the children Whatever happened to the Mayans? As of Monday 11th May, we will be beginning to explore the history of the Mayans, looking at their art, architecture, stories and mysteries! This will include a visit to the school by the group Mexicolore, a hands-on opportunity for the children to experience a range of aspects of the Mayan and Mexican culture. This will take place on Tuesday 23rd June, with more details to come closer to the time.
This term, as we build towards sports day, we will be doing all of our PE outdoors. This means your children need the school PE uniform (dark navy shorts, trainers, blue school polo-top), but will also need clothing appropriate for those times when it is raining lightly, such as a tracksuit, or for when it is especially hot and sunny. Please make sure that all items of PE kit are clearly named.
As an additional opportunity, the Year 4 children will have the chance to attend this year’s Mini-Olympics, on Tuesday 16th June. More details will follow in due course.
To take full advantage of the warm summer weather, we will be looking to give the children many opportunities for outdoor learning. Your children will need appropriate clothing for the weather. This may include sun hats, and sun screen that they are able to apply themselves. In addition, it is very important that they have a drink with them. Please make sure your child has a named water bottle in school.
